nettech98 I just depend on Windows' copy/paste function. If there is a photo on a website, I just right-click and hit "copy" and then I [Ctrl]-[V] when I'm in a comment such as this one like so.



Not sure if there is another way. If there is, I'd like to learn it so that I can paste animated gifs instead of just static photos.

WTH, was the world always filled with such sniveling cowards or have I just been in denial all my life? What ever happened to owning up to your own mistakes, taking responsibility for your own actions, and working to make things right?

I feel like most news stories are filled with powerful people doing everything they can to abuse people with less power than they have, and then when they get called out...either deny everything and attack the accuser or throw up their hands and say, F*** IT, and walk away from everything.

boredusernames01 Congress is the check and balance, which was fine until the Senate started ramming votes down via a simple majority.

The Supreme Court is the 2nd check and balance, but that takes time (within that time Comcast can pocket billions) and requires a constitutional challenge to free speech, which is a very costly burden to prove (the amicus brief will be enormous).

spanz If he was using the word "nigger," it sounds like he was bullied for being a bully. Which isn't a good thing, but it's more understandable. Tit for tat and an eye for an eye is the rule of the playground until we grow up a bit (unless you're Trump...then you just escalate).

megrendel erm...scandal has nothing to do with evidence.

Indictments can only be brought when there is evidence.

So, putting the chart together with your words, you seem to weigh accusations without evidence as being equal to accusations with evidence. Interesting.

jayme21 Indictment is that there is enough evidence to convict someone. Conviction means that the evidence was compelling enough for a jury to believe beyond a reasonable doubt.

To say that only Republicans engage in gerrymandering districts would be a lie.

True, but to say that Republicans and Democrats equally engage in gerrymandering is also a lie.

I mean, both men and women engage in rape, but men overwhelmingly rape more often than women do.

No it is still the best system to provide equality to a nation of states.

Not when a majority of districts are gerrymandered to artificially inflate the voting power of one party over the other.

I'm not blaming the system for the voter's ignorance. I'm blaming the system for being susceptible to tinkering without effective checks and balances.

I'm not sure if anyone's done a study just for porn stars. I would think the stats would be similar across the board.  *shrug*

Now it's a tool of the Republican party.

trimble At a microscopic level (dealing with friends, family, coworkers, etc.) I always look for a 3rd option and I hate the choice between two evils. But at a macroscopic level, I realize that I only have limited power in life to nudge things one way or another. Deal with the world the way it is, not the way you wish it to be.

Lesson learned. If you're ever accused of harassment, it's better to call the woman a slut who deserved what was coming to her than to own up to it and work to pass legislation to prevent it from happening to anyone else.

It's the Republican way.

IS AMERICA GREAT YET?

If the only choice is to go to war, then support the strategy that kills the least number of innocents.

It's her body, her choice.

But if she wants to promote her choice on the Internet, she should understand that she will get backlash from people on the Internet who do not agree with her choice.

All bullying is wretched though. I don't care if you're promoting world peace. If you're BULLYING people who do not believe in world peace, then your are in the wrong. People love to bully nowadays.

scheckydamon Nah, politicians get more votes by telling Americans that everyone else is more f***ed up than they are. Particularly when they start wars with countries that are super-sensitive and are on the verge of going to war. Wag the dog! Wag the dog!
